Royals sign first baseman Lucas Duda

Royals sign first baseman Lucas Duda”

The 32-year-old Duda hit.217 with 30 homers and 64 RBI last year for the New York Mets and Tampa Bay, which acquired him on July 27.

According to a press release, outfielder Billy Burns has been designated for assignment.

Opening day for the World Series champions is March 29, when the Astros visit Texas.

Olympics: Scott Blackmun resigned as chief executive of the U.S. Olympic Committee, stepping aside so he can tackle his worsening bout with prostate cancer and to allow the federation to move forward under new leadership to address the sex-abuse scandal that has rocked gymnastics and other sports.

"It's not an elephant in the room", Yost said.

Duda spent the first seven-plus seasons of his Major League career with the Mets (2010-17), finishing his time in NY seventh in franchise history with 125 home runs, while his 71 roundtrippers at Citi Field are the most in the nine-year history of the ballpark. If we make the play again, he might have thrown Hos out by 10 feet. On Wednesday, the team announced that it has agreed to a one-year deal with free agent Lucas Duda. Before adding Duda, the Royals' candidates included a trio of players with no first-base experience in the major leagues: Hunter Dozier, Frank Schwindel and Ryan O'Hearn.

Duda on Wednesday said it was amusing how things work out in baseball. He played in one exhibition game this spring and homered.
